Foam Case Inserts.
Engineered Plastazote foam protection
Are you experiencing a high or unacceptable level of damages to your tools, or products in transit? If your answer is yes, then your business should take advantage of custom designed case foam. Utilising the latest software and performance calculations, custom case inserts can offer a precise level of protection.
This, in turn, eliminates transit damage, reduces your costs of returns and replacements, and enhances your reputation across your customer base.
01: Key Benefits of Case Inserts.
Addressing why transit damage is such a problem
Damage caused to expensive or critical items in transit can result in major problems for your business.
From the expense and administration involved in organising replacements, to delays in critical projects, such issues can prove expensive.
Perhaps even more damaging however is the effect that unreliable supply of products or equipment can have on your business, resulting in the potential loss of repeat business and a poor brand perception.

02: Damage Reduction.
Case foam inserts designed specifically to eliminate damage
The vast majority of foam converters, when faced with the challenge of protecting items, will mistakenly compromise the solution by including much more foam than is required.
This is counter productive in that it both costs more in materials, and actually reduces protection.
GWP Protective, however, takes a more scientific approach.
We are one of very few designers to use cutting edge software which accurately predicts and calculates the ideal foam thickness, density and surface area for maximum product protection.
This approach can vastly reduce shock damage in transit.
This software accurately predicts cushioning performance of the foam case inserts, based on extensive test data, across a wide range of expanded polyethylene materials. This, in turn, can be applied to your protective case foam inserts to gain a truly tailored level of protection for your products.
Your business can, therefore, benefit not only from having a package which is bespoke to your products but also from the optimum levels of cushioning protection it provides.
Suitable protection for your products, parts or equipment can therefore ultimately lead to improved customer retention and repeat business.

04: Product Protection
A proven strategy to reduce both damage and costs for your business
By specifying custom foam case inserts that are engineered to provide calculated levels of cushioning protection, you can ensure the safe transit of your important items. You can also eliminate delays, eradicate the costs associated with returns and ultimately improve customer satisfaction.
Plastazote – the material used to create high performance case inserts – is well known for being lightweight, tough, flexible and moisture resistant. It is also chemically inert and resistant to oils, solvents, dilute acids and UV light.
It is available in a large range of colours too, offering brand consistency and additional customisation options. As well as case inserts, Plastazote foam inserts can be used in a multitude of stand-alone packaging applications.
Improved reputation in the reliable supply of high value items, by reducing the costs associated with damage, can also increase sales through additional repeat business.
Alongside this high level of transit protection that ensures items arrive undamaged, it also ensures crucial projects and / or jobs are not hindered by delays.
05: Exterior Case Options.
Choosing a case for your inserts
Of course, case inserts without a suitable exterior case will not always be able to offer the levels of protection you require. For the optimum level of protection, choosing from a huge range of custom builtor branded exterior cases is of the utmost importance.
Being completely independent, it means that GWP Protective can offer you the widest range of protective cases available from a single source.
Sourcing both case and foam together further benefits your business.
A common issue when specifying cases and foam from differing sources is that, not only is the cost higher, but the fit and compatibility between product, foam and exterior case can be less than perfect.
With a well equipped, modern conversion facility, skilled production team and experienced designers, GWP Protective can reduce your costs through being a genuine single source case and foam supplier. Being completely independent, we are able to provide impartial advice on the optimum exterior case for your specific application.
